What’s electric scooters weight limit (Capacity) and how heavy they are?

electric scooters weight limit

Electric scooters are turning out to be a cultural phenomenon as they gain popularity in some of the biggest cities around the world. That being said, if you’re planning to buy one any time soon, you must consider the electric scooter weight limit. Usually, electric scooters are lightweight and easy to carry, after all, portability is its key feature, but lately, manufacturers have started building sturdier and heavier electric scooters to meet the demand of different riders.

Average electric scooter weight limit:

The weight limit depends on the model and relies heavily on the frame of the electric scooter. More often than not, electric scooters can handle a weight load of up to 220 lbs, there are more heavy-duty rideables that can handle up to 500 lbs.

I reviewed some of the most popular e-scooters on Amazon and Ebay to come up with the list below.

1. Average weight limit of electric scooters for adults:

Before you decide to buy an electric scooter, you should consider the weight limit of the scooter you want to buy. Different scooters are made for holding up to a certain load. Most adult electric scooters can easily take a weight load of up to 220 lbs. However, there are plenty of these units that can carry people who weigh more than 340 lbs too.

2. Average weight limit of electric scooters for teenagers:

For teenagers, electric scooters give them a sense of freedom and fun. These rideables are a great vehicle before they can start driving. This age group needs heavier e-scooters than those for kids. The average weight limit of these e-scooters is 180 lbs. These motorized scooters are really cool for teenagers as some of them even come with bluetooth speakers, maps and you can track them with a simple app.

3. Average weight limit for scooters for kids:

There is a common misconception that kids cannot use electric scooters and that they’re only for teenagers and adults. That isn’t true. Today, there are plenty of electric scooters that are specially made for kids. Electric scooters for kids use less aluminium and can handle an average weight load of 121 lbs. To ensure their safety when they’re riding the e-scooter, which is your responsibility, ensure they are wearing a helmet and knee pads at all times.

Electric scooter load capacity (weight limit) by popular brands and models:

In order to break it down for you, I’ve gone through the specifications of the most famous brands and their models. The average weight of these rideables are 26 lbs, ranging from 22 lbs to 28 lbs. Some of the heavier units are made for those who weigh more than 264 lbs, while some have capacity that is lower and are super light themselves. Here’s a list you’ll want to review:

How much does a scooter weigh?

Scooters that have heavier, more powerful motors naturally weigh more. A stronger motor will mean a heavier motor, and this will add to the net weight of the electric scooter. The final weight depends on the size of the motor, the size of the scooter itself and its battery.

Electric scooters were created to increase mobility in congested cities. The best thing about them is that you can carry them inside your home or at work. However, manufacturers are now creating heavy-duty e-scooters too, for reasons such as off-roading and heavy riders.

Average weight of electric scooters for adults: 

They usually weigh under 30 lbs with a larger weight capacity (220 lbs). Their motors are more powerful than e-scooters for teenagers and kids. However, the average cost of adult electric scooters can be around $300.

Average weight of electric scooters for teenagers:

Teenagers love the independence that comes with electric scooters. Most of these electric scooters weigh around 20 lbs and cost an average of $200, but taller and heavier teens usually use adult e-scooters.

Average weight of electric scooters for kids:

Kids don’t need speedy electric scooters. The average weight of these rideables for kids is around 17 lbs and cost around $150-200. Remember, choose one that is safe, lightweight and easy to handle. Always ensure they are wearing protective gear, because their safety is your responsibility.
